Yup, they are drilled in. I had mine taken off and the holes filled inMy g6 came with a front license plate bracket installed. I was a bit upset to find that this item had been drilled into the front bumper of my new car when I arrived to take delivery of the vehicle. Not sure if that is a factory installed or dealer installed accessory, but I'm not much of a fan.
Can someone confirm that this item is indeed drilled into the front bumper? I can't get behind the bracket to see if this is indeed so. I hope it is not, but I'm not holding my breath.
If it is indeed drilled into the bumper, any ideas on how to "get rid of it"?
I think I am stuck with the bracket, so I guess I'll have to purchase some sort of license plate to adorn the front of my vehicle.
